Why the (legacy) Enterprise is Scared of Git – and what you can do about it
Developers love Git, corporations less so. The war over tools can be a huge distraction in moving to a DevOps environment that is collaborative and automated. During his presentation, Sweeney will outline the common reasons why Git in particular, and tooling in general, can generate so much controversy. During this presentation, attendees will gain a firm understanding of the pros and cons of Git development, the common concerns of using Git in the enterprise, and practical, useful approaches for adopting this popular open source technology within larger IT environments and in the context of DevOps.
In addition to Sweeney's presentation, CollabNet's Nick Gulrajani and Paul Peissner will lead a discussion on enterprise examples of hybrid IT and DevOps on Thurs., April 25 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. PDT. CollabNet is a gold sponsor at ChefConf 2013 and will exhibit at booth #108.
